College Salsa Congress 2018

Spartan Mambo took 2nd place at the 11th Annual Next Generation College Salsa Congress held in Los Angeles this past weekend. We had tough competition from schools like CSUN, Stanford, and CSULB and were just a few points shy of the top spot.

We also performed our 2015 championship winning salsa routine as well as a new bachata routine. Thanks to everyone who supported us on our journey, and congratulations to all the dancers!
